The Scott’s Fairy Wrasse, also known as the Black-fin or Blackedge Fairy Wrasse, originates from the waters of Australia, Cook Islands, and Fiji, and each location represents a color variation of Cirrhilabrus scottorum.

The Scott’s Fairy Wrasse from Fiji is also known as Scott’s Greenback Fairy Wrasse and is mostly green in color with a striking black margin on the dorsal fin. Scott’s Fairy Wrasse originating from Cook Islands is bluer in coloration with yellow fins and contains more definitive breaks between the colors. The variety collected from Australia contains more red within the fins and the break in coloration within the body is less dramatic. The male and female of this species are very similarly colored, but when courting, the male will display increased color intensity. Colors may vary depending on the fish’s mood.
